Description

Inclusive Cities Summit
Building tomorrow's cities today.

What

Two days of panels and urban labs, the Inclusive Cities Summit will bring together leaders to translate the New Urban Agenda into a Toronto and Canadian cities context. The Summit will examine how we can build better cities, and based on trends, a better world of the future through a New Urban Agenda and 2030 Agenda lens that also advances the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

It will develop real, credible and results-based solutions for our cities and our societies to grow and prosper
sustainably as we examine the following:

1. The Future of Local Democracy and Governance
2. Accessibility and Mobility in a Connected City
3. Resilient and Sustainable Cities for the 21st Century
4. Building a Healthy and Prosperous City
5. Closing the Affordability and Fairness Gap

Why

At the historic milestone of our nation’s Sesquicentennial, we have a unique opportunity as we’re reflecting on 150 years of Canada’s history to chart out the next 150 years. What will Canada 300 look like? What will our cities look like 150 years from now?

This is an opportunity to contribute to building tomorrow's cities today.
